Tis the season to be Jolly, spend loads of money, eat loads of food, drink loads of alcohol and hopefully not fall out with our nearest and dearest.
And just when the hangover from Christmas and boxing day has passed, it'll be time to gear up for the biggest New Years Eve celebration in a decade. As this year is different....this year is special....this year holds a little extra significance...
As we enter a NEW DECADE, drumandbass.store wanted to curate a list of Drum & Bass parties both nationally and globally, not only as a guide for our followers, but also to help document the ever growing global reach of our music, our scene, Drum & Bass.
4 clubs, 1 night - New Years Eve 2019
To celebrate the turn of the decade in style, we're hitting 4 clubs in 1 night, taking pictures, soaking up the vibe and reporting back on shenanigans via our blog page the very next day (maybe)
- Stop 1 - Cataclysm - NYE Adelphi Take Over - The Adelphi - Preston
At drumandbass.store we're all about inclusion and we love a free party!
Growing up in the mid 90's it wasn't always easy to get DJ sets in London unless you were established, so the free party scene proved to be the training ground for many a selector.
Starting our night in Preston, we're going to be at Cataclysm, a night the promoter says is put on for "the love of the music, the bass and most importantly the bass faces we create"
Expect the usual chaos from the Cataclysm team; Downstairs they're running a multi-genre room at 140bpm and upstairs they'll be going faster with everything 170+!

- Stop 2 - AMP: NYE with Ed Solo, Annix, Benny Page, AC13 b2b Jam Thieves - The Breadshed - Manchester
The next stop of the night takes us 30 miles south via the M61 to Manchester's iconic Bread Shed to see in the new decade in style with a weighty Drum and Bass line-up including some big names and heavy hitting local talent.
Drum and Bass in the North West is absolutely booming at the minute with this night at The Bread Shed playing host to the likes of Ed Solo, Benny Page, Annix, AC13 and a crack squad of selectors from Manchester's award winning internet staion, Bloc2Bloc.
Expect a night of Cheeky Rollerz, Jump Up, Jungle & Minimal Drum & Bass served up by some of the most exciting characters in the scene.
